Lovers of old houses, this one’s for you. Located just a few blocks from Lake Michigan, this five-bedroom, three-and-half-bath Queen Anne features all the stately charm you’d expect from an 1897 home. The brick home’s three-story tower is topped by a conical roof, while steeply gabled roofs, overhanging eaves, and stonework offer great curb appeal.
Inside, a two-story foyer with hand-carved fireplace makes for an impressive entrance. The formal dining room features hand-crafted built-ins, trim, and moldings, and a hand-painted fresco ceiling and another fireplace completes the look. Other perks include a south-facing sun room, a third-floor ballroom, and a private breakfast room off of the kitchen.
Throw in the two-story carriage house on a double lot, and you have an affordable abode for all the Victorian-era fans out there. Want to make it yours? 535 North 6th Street is on the market now for $429,900.
